I can't help but grin when I look through the photos from Lia and Jeff's wedding day. From start to finish, the day was filled with laughter and overwhelming amounts of love. One of my favorite things is observing not just the love of the bride and groom, but also all the people they surround themselves with on their wedding day - and let me tell you, Lia and Jeff have a serious squad of awesome supporters when it comes to family and friends. They welcomed us into their day by offering all the food and coffee they had, and continued the day with the same generosity and warmth. It's such a good day when I don't want to leave at the end because I'm having too much fun. This crew knows real well how to love, laugh, and DANCE! My kind of people right here.

Also, shooting at St John's Armenian Church and the Townsend Hotel was a DREAM. More weddings there, please. The church is strikingly beautiful (hello stained glass and domed ceiling), and the Townsend is class and glam, located right in downtown Birmingham. Enjoy these snaps of lovely details and even lovelier moments, and thanks a million to Lia and Jeff for their kindness and infectious exuberance.

Shout-out to Leighanne Sturgis for being the best second-shooter around.
